Bait Rig

Fishing bait employs the heave it and leave it technique. Use a rod holder stake. Size your gear accordingly. When targeting small or leader shy fish use a lighter weight rig with Gulp! Floating Salmon Eggs or an earthworm. For bigger fish like striped bass use a heavier duty rig with live or dead bait like mackerel chunk, eel, squid, or clam. For medium sized fish use large live shiners and gear in between.
